Our Mission: NanoMEMS Research, Consulting and Education
Long Term: We engage in fundamental Research and Development of concepts surrounding the "new electronics" paradigm enabled by exploiting NanoMEMS (the merging of nanoelectronics and microelectromechanical systems (MEMS)), brought about by advances in nanotechnology (the methods and tools to fabricate nanoscale device structures). In this context, we target the conception of paradigms to produce the hardware that will be at the core of the Internet of Things (IoT), computers (e.g., mainframes, personal, laptops, PDAs, etc.), secure wireless communications appliances (e.g., cell phones, satellites, etc.), biomedicine (e.g., therapeutic nanorobots), and energy (e.g., novel energy conversion schemes) of the future.
Also, whenever consistent with our mission, we selectively offer integrated research, design, and prototyping services. Through NanoMEMS Research, LLC as their surrogate fundamental research laboratory, companies can cost-effectively and expeditiously engage into the timely exploration of futuristic, highly speculative concepts, of import to their present and future products, thus allowing them to maintaing their internal focus on meeting their short-term business performance objectives.
Short Term: Through our Consulting and Education Services, we help our clients seize and capitalize on state-of-the-art technologies. You can be sure that there is one of our services that matches your development and training needs. Don't be left out of the next industrial revolution. Let's seize the future... today!

Who We Are
NanoMEMS Research, LLC, is a privately-held company founded in 2002, to research and develop, and commercialize novel ideas exploiting RF MEMS and Nanotechnology (thus NanoMEMS). The company’s mission is to research, conceive, develop and commercialize RF MEMS and Nanotechnology devices, circuits, systems and applications.
The company is led by Dr. Hector J. De Los Santos, President and Chief Technical Officer. Dr De Los Santos received the Ph.D. degree from the School of Electrical Engineering, Purdue University, West Lafayette, IN, in 1989. Prior to founding NanoMEMS in 2002, he spent two years as Principal Scientist at Coventor, Inc., Irvine, CA, and eleven years at Hughes Space and Communications Company, Los Angeles, CA, where he served as Principal Investigator and Director of the Future Enabling Technologies. Under this program, he pursued research in the areas of RF MEMS, Quantum Functional Devices and Circuits, and Photonic Bandgap Devices and Circuits.
Dr. De Los Santos holds over 30 US, European, Japanese and German patents, and is author of bestseller textbooks, including Introduction to Microelectromechanical (MEM) Microwave Systems (1999), now in Artech House's IPF (In-Print-Forever) series, RF MEMS Circuit Design for Wireless Communications (2002), and Principles and Applications of NanoMEMS Physics, Springer (2005). His most recent book, Radio System Engineering: A Tutorial Approach, was published by Springer in 2014.
His current research interests include, discovery, conception, theory, physics, computational modeling, simulation, analysis, design and applications (electronics, microwave and mm-waves, photonics, quantum computing & communications, biomedicine, energy, Internet of Things, etc.) of devices and circuits enabled by exploiting physical phenomena occurring down to nanometer length scales, including, plasmonics, photonic crystals, RF MEMS, and mechanical systems in the quantum regime. He is also interested in Research and Teaching in a University setting. Since 2006 he has been an IEEE Distinguished Lecturer of the Electron Devices Society.
He is member of Tau Beta Pi, Eta Kappa Nu, and Sigma Xi. From 2010 to 2011 he held the prestigious German Research Foundation (DFG) Mercator Visiting Professorship at the Institute for High-Frequency Engineering and Electronics (IHE), Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT)/University of KArlsruhe (TH), Germany.
His activities as reviewer include: Applied Physics Letters, Journal of Applied Physics, IEEE Trans. Superconductivity, IEEE Trans. on Electron Devices, IEEE Trans. on Nanotechnology, IEEE Trans. Untrasonics, Ferroelectrics and Frequency Control, IEEE Micrwave and Wireless Component Letters, J. Vac. Sci. and Tech. A, IEEE/ASME J. Microelectromechanical Systems, IEEE Trans. Microwave Theory & Techniques, and COMPEL: The Int. J. for Computation and Math in Electrical and Electronic Engg., among others.
He is a proposal reviewer for the US National Science Foundation (NSF), the European Sience Foundation (ESF), the Australian Research Council (ARC), and the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC).
Dr. De Los Santos' work has received over 1480 citations, and currently possesses a Google Scholar h-index=20.
Since 2006 he is an IEEE Fellow.
